Re: [Libguestfs] LVM flakey failures



Oh right, I forgot that I had to do that to inject policycoreutils package into the libguestfs appliance (to support g.available(['selinuxrelabel']))

So if I somehow install systemd 248 from source on my debian docker and then create the appliance on it, it should just work I guess.

Thanks!

If you're using supermin then it should just happen as soon as you
upgrade it on the host system.

It copies the installed binaries in, but they must be known to dpkg
(IOW you must build a new systemd_<VERSION>.deb file and install it).
